I am obsessed with Fries!! But I also, want some healthy options.
Like you, we do cook at home.
In Coming --- Baked Fries that are Ridiculously Easy and Good!!
Ok, so this started while back when I took our Daughter to get a quick headshot for some applications.
After, she ran by and got some Wing Stop Fries. I said, hey, I can do that -- better and healthier.
Here it is:
Regular old Russet Potatoes. At least 1 per person. In my world 2 - serious fry-o-haulics here!!
-Then cut into fries. I like a thickish, but you can quickly hand slice them as thick as you want.
You will get the hang of it.
-Soak in cold water for a minimum of 20 minutes to remove starch.
-Drain well. (I used a collander over a bowl).
-Preheat Oven to 450.
-Put on oil sprayed cookie sheet.
-Spread out in single layer on cookie sheet.
-Spray with oil spray.
-Bake at 450 for about 40-45 minutes. Turn a couple of times.
-Mix some salt, pepper, garlic powder (just a pinch) and sugar!! (I eyeballed it).
-Sprinkle on fries. Mix around on cookie sheet, to coat. (I wish I had of used more sugar). Use your judgement here.
-Want more to stick. Give a light oil spray, mix with sugar mixture and put back in oven for a few mintes (5 or less).
We dipped in: Ketchup, Honey Mustard, Srirracha Mayo , BBQ Sauce, and of course Ranch.
Make this your own. Experiment. Get the kids, hubs, everyone involved. Taste, add more seasoning.
Enjoy, Celebrate, and think of us!!
